Two years after the monumentally massive splendour of The Phantom Agony (2003), Epica released the majestic successor Consign To Oblivion. On this album, for the greater part inspired by the Mayan culture, the group around mezzo-soprano Simone Simons and guitarist Mark Jansen broke new ground. The music was getting more accessible and the variety of the compositions grew, ranging from unadulterated gothic-metal to ballads. "This album marks Epica's growth into maturity", Mark Jansen stated. "This is the album I always wanted to make. Now we've finally had the opportunity and the capacity to realize a project like this."
On Consign To Oblivion Epica show themselves as an imposing and tightly-knit rock machine with almost Wagnerian power, proving in all aspects why the band is counted as the vanguard of international gothic-metal scene in the category female fronted. A glorious new album by a great, which includes 6 bonus tracks!
